The Influence of Formal Education on Rule Learning and Attribute Identification in a West African Society
Ciborowski, Tom
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 8, 1, 17-32, Mar 77
Groups of formally educated and of uneducated rural Kpelle tribesman and children were given conceptual learning problems. The finding that education proved to have no significant effect on rule learning for either a conjunctive or a disjunctive rule is interpreted as indicating that formal education exerts its influence primarily on the way in which known conceptual rules are used in a testing situation.
